Christmas Crochet Projects

If you are a crafter then you probably have most of your Christmas makes already on the go or even finished. However, some, like me, are a bit late starting so I have put together a list of some quick and easy crochet projects for you to get done in time for Christmas.

I will be including affiliate links throughout my post. This means that if you click through and buy something it may earn me a little money…at no extra cost to you! So big thanks if you do.

Decorations

This first one I’ve ordered myself so I’ll let you know how I get on. It’s a lovely Christmas tree bunting. You can download the pattern for free or buy the yarn and pattern for £7. I’m thinking this won’t take long to make.

Last Christmas I took part in the Deramores Christmas CAL (Crochet Along) and I did most of the items in the pack, yes, I even managed to finish the cushion cover. You can do this again this year. Again the patterns can be downloaded for free, but you can also buy packs of yarn for £21.68 or a complete pack with yarn, cushion and eyes for £30.92.

I have already been sent a copy of these snowflakes as a free gift in my last package from Deramores. I’ve had a go at a couple and they are a bit tricky at first but I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to make a few in time for the tree going up. Or I may make them to hang in the window. Digital pattern is free, and pattern with wool just £1.95

Here is something a little different, these would be great for those with a new baby in the family for Christmas. A lovely set of Christmas jumpers and rompers. These are £2.40 for the pattern and £8.04 for the pattern and wool.

Gnomes are quite popular at the moment and you can crochet a complete gnome family for a Christmas treat. The pattern for these four gnomes and a present sack is just £2 for a digital download. Or you can purchase the pattern and wool for £11.75 and add the stuffing for £14.75. The sets would also make a great gift for someone who loves to crochet too.

Scarfs make such lovely gifts and are even more special when they have been handmade. They can also be relatively quick and easy to make and don’t have to take the break the bank. This pattern is free to download and you can choose whatever colours you wish, or you can buy the kit with wool for just £6.18.

I love these fabulous flat animal cuddly toys and they look pretty easy to make. In fact I’m going to have a go at this lovely rabbit by downloading the free pattern. You can also buy the pattern and yarn for £5.37.

These are just a very few of the things you could crochet for Christmas. I get all my inspiration from Deramores my favourite wool shop. They always have some amazing offers and if you pop along this week there is a special offer every day!

Teen Gift List for Girls

I have two Teenage girls (and a boy, but I’ll write about him later) and I really don’t know what to get them for Christmas. Thankfully there are lots of teen gift lists to browse and I hope that I can include some ideas here that not only my girls will like but you will feel inspired too.

Teen Girls Gift Guide

Emma from Emma and 3 has written a fabulous guide of teen and tween gifts which I know my girls would be really happy with. One thing she mentions is a journal and I generally buy my girls a journal every year.

Teen girls also love a bit of pampering and I love this pampering pack from Avon which contains everything from bubble bath to face masks.

Pyjamas are always an easy choice. You can choose something plain, pretty or go for a favourite character or theme. I particularly like these Disney Villains pjs from Character.

Books are always a good choice, especially if you know what they like reading. A Harry Potter fan for instance gives you loads of options. If you are not sure though, you can always opt for something more generic like the Guinness Book of Records (my teen has one of these every year) or even something inspiring like this fab book, Be Happy Be You. You can read my review here.

Technology

My girls have a switch and have asked for a retro game this year, Super Mario 3D All Stars. A new game is always a good option if you know what sort they like playing.

You can find a list of games over on Rainbows are Too Beautiful which may give you more inspiration.

When you get to technology though you can end up spending a small fortune. My girls had new tablets last year and this year they are having a new computer between them (only when they’ve cleaned their room) but I’ve been given a voucher to buy one so it’s not costing me too much. I can’t believe how desktop computers have sky rocketed in price, it’s probably because laptops and tablets are more popular now. You don’t have to spend a fortune when it comes to tech. though. All kids love a new pair of headphones or earphones.

I think I may be ready to start Christmas shopping now, how about you? Do you have teens to buy for?

Do you remember what your favourite gift was when you were a teen?
